“Lovely homestay”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

We stayed with the Shardas for 2 nights and found the family to be very hospitable, they were very friendly and made us very welcome. The food was very good, vegetarian (no eggs).
The room was very nice and we were given warm blankets. We did find that the house was cold so if we go again we would go in the summer.We were disappointed that the Mall was about 15minutes away by car as the guide had said minutes from the Mall, we were under the impression that we would be able to walk there. This meant that we had to get a taxi but the Shardas arranged all this for us.

Everyone in Vatsalyam treated us all very well. They are both professional in being hospitable as well as in the upkeep of the rooms. We almost felt like staying with a family known to us for many years. We in fact fell in love with the food prepared by both Mrs Sushma Sharda as well as her daughter-in-law. My daughters developed a very cordial relationship with Driti-granddaughter of Mrs Sharda. They provided practical guidance on the local sight-seeing trips. Her Daughter-in-law accompanied us to the shopping mall and gave practical tips on buying the local goods which is very much appreciated. Wish they start a home-stay like this in Manali also.
